Dallas @ Cleveland

May 10th 9:00am

Dallas visits Cleveland after dominating the reverse fixture at the American Airlines Arena on Saturday. 

The 110-90 result in favour of the Mavericks meant it dealt the Cavaliers with a ninth straight defeat and in the process improved their own record to 39-28 for the season. 

A 20-13 on-the-road record for the Mavericks has them poised to lock in a playoffs spot as has the form of Luka Doncic. 

The star point guard, that is Doncic, launched home 24 points in 23 minutes to guide the Mavericks to the 10-point victory against the Cavaliers. 

A home-court advantage for the Cavaliers should bridge the margin from the performance in Dallas but even with Colin Sexton averaging 24.4 points per game it’s hard to the results of Saturday flipping. 

Suggested Bet: Cleveland Cavaliers +10.5 point spread at $1.94

Suggested Same Game Multi: 
Leg 1: Cleveland Cavaliers +10.5 point spread
Leg 2: L. Doncic under 26.5 points
Leg 3: C. Sexton over 23.5 points
Combined odds = $6.25

The Zion Williamson-led New Orleans Pelicans trek to the  Spectrum Center for a clash against the Charlotte Hornets.

The Pelicans boast a losing 12-20 record on the road and will attempt to improve that record by forcing the issue in the paint.

New Orleans is second in the Western Conference scoring 54.3 points per game in the paint with Zion Williamson averaging 20.3.

Both two teams square off for the second time this season with The Hornets defeating the Pelicans 118-110 in their last meeting on January 8.

Gordon Hayward led Charlotte with 26 points, and Williamson paced New Orleans scoring 26 points.
